I wonder if anyone of you faced the same situation as I am. V and I are both movie lovers. During our courtship, we would go to the cinema every week. But after I gave birth to Little Edison, it’s difficult for us to sneak out for a movie. We thought of bringing him along but I was worried that he couldn’t sit still and start making noises that disturb the others.
Now, I would like to ask you, “When was the first time you brought your children to the cinema?”, “How old are they when they first watched a movie in the cinema?” and “Do they enjoy the movie?”.
I’m asking these questions because we’re planning to bring Little Edison for his first cinema experience very soon. We really look forward to it. I can imagine my boy munching popcorns, laughing at the funny scenes and enjoying himself.
We’ve been lucky to be invited to watch the preview screening of “Mars Needs Moms” which will be held in 3D.
Here’s a short introduction of the movie:
Take out the trash, eat your broccoli—who needs moms, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young.
Produced by the team behind “Disney’s A Christmas Carol” and “The Polar Express,” “Mars Needs Moms” showcases Milo’s quest to save his mom—a wild adventure in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader (Mindy Sterling).
With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble (Dan Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom—in more ways than one.
And here’s a sneak peek of the scenes and the trailer:
